David Goricki of The Detroit News selects the top girls basketball players in the state.
5-4, Jr., G, Detroit Renaissance
Davis earned the title of Miss PSL, averaging 17.5 points, 5.5 steals and four assists, scoring 34, including seven 3-pointers in the PSL championship game win over Detroit Cass Tech to give Renaissance its first league title since 2011.
“She did a great job of scoring off the ball and on it,” coach Shane Lawal said. “She made big shots in big games and was a highly efficient player, taking only 13.6 shots and making only 2.2 turnovers.”
Davis has multiple Mid-American Conference offers.
Sr., G-F, Detroit Edison
“She is special to our program because as a leader she has always been one of our hardest workers from Day 1,” coach Monique Brown said. “She understands what it takes to be a winner and has applied that to her daily routine. Her mentality has spilled over to the entire team, never letting numbers define her, but doing whatever it takes to help us win.”
Elliott will play next year at Clemson.
5-7, Jr., G, Detroit Edison
Hagemann averaged 12.1 points, 7.3 assists and three steals to help Edison to a 22-0 record and No. 1 ranking.
“Dee Dee is such an awesome floor leader,” coach Monique Brown said. “Her specialty is getting her teammates the ball where they can be successful, points are not at the top of her agenda. Her goal is to reach 1,000 assists.”
Hagemann has multiple offers, including Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State.
5-11, Sr., G, East Lansing
Nye was an outstanding all-around player for East Lansing, averaging 16.1 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 38.8% from 3-point range to lead her team to a 23-1 record and No. 2 ranking in The News Super 20.
Nye will play next year at Illinois.
6-4, Sr., C, Hartland
Sollom was a dominant force on both ends of the floor for Hartland which won the Kensington Lakes Activities Association tournament championship and finished with a school-record 23-1 record with a No. 4 ranking by The News. She averaged 10.6 points and 9.7 rebounds.
“Whitney was concerned with being a good teammate first and winning second,” coach Don Palmer said. “She is extremely talented, yet completely unselfish.”
Sollom will play next year at Michigan.
Coach of the Year
LEIGH ANN ROEHM, Saline
Roehm guided Saline to a school-record 22 wins and its first regional victory since the 1980s with a 51-40 regional semifinal win over Wayne Memorial, which advanced to the Division 1 state semifinals last year.
“This team was so united, and their success was founded in their relationships with one another,” Roehm said. “They were committed, inspired and mentally tough. I am proud of their run and have so much gratitude for the opportunity to be their coach.”
